FIRST LOOK: DEADLOCKE

Deadlocke will arrive in stores on Nov. 18 from Dark Horse Comics. The issue is written by Arvid Nelson, with art by Nick Stakal and a cover by Jock.

Here's how Dark Horse describes the issue:

"In modern-day New York City, a ragtag group of rebellious teens throws its annual raucous Weimar bash filled with debauchery, booze, and bloody knuckles. Going for the first time is Locke Vinetti, a newcomer to this band of bored rich kids -- a loner who usually prefers to escape into the world of his alter ego comic book creation, Deadlocke. Under the tutelage of the group's charming but unpredictable ringleader Casey, Locke has learned to express his art, and his angst, in ways he never thought possible. As the violent energy of Deadlocke continues to storm up inside of him, Locke must learn to control his newfound strength at the risk of losing Renee, the darkly beautiful girl of his dreams. Determined to prove that Deadlocke's rage will overpower Locke's love, Casey provokes Locke in a brutal rooftop battle where their lives, and their souls, hang in the balance.

"Based on the Simon & Schuster young adult novel Venomous by Christopher Krovatin, Deadlocke is a story of a young man coming to terms with his own demons in a search for his true identity."

Deadlocke will be 32 pages and will cost $3.50.
